Favorite Things (February)

Teachers all have favorite grades and subjects to teach. For me, I've known since I started teaching that I was meant to teach upper elementary. When I am asked what grade I teach, most people cringe at the word "fifth," but I love it here! Yes, they can be smelly and their hormones are out of control, but there's a lot to love about these kiddos. Here are my favorite things about 5th grade...

There is one thing I hate about fifth grade though... At the end of the year, they leave for middle school. And unless they have a younger sibling, I don't get to see them again, except for rare occasions.

  2. I never thought about that 5th graders can't stop back by in the am to say "hey"☹️! I've never taught 5th graders because I love teaching Primary but I'm glad there are teachers like you who love to teach upper! Hats off to you!
